This episode of Truth, Lies & Alzheimer’s features part two of host Lisa Skinner’s discussion of person-centered approaches to care. Lisa discusses reminiscence therapy, an innovative caregiving approach that involves discussing memories and past experiences with a person by utilizing prompts such as photographs or music to evoke memories and stimulate conversation.
Reminiscence therapy can help a person with dementia reconnect with their lives and even help provide closure for past impactful events. Lisa tells the story of a creative memory care director who used reminiscence therapy to diffuse a patient’s anxiety by recreating his bedroom in the dementia unit to look like his office from when he practiced law.
